Mexico 5 Centavos  1905 to 1914
Mexico 5 Centavos 1905 to 1914

You are correct, Randy. 1905 is one of the *better dates* for Mexican 5 centavos that look like our picture.

The coin in our picture comes from top-rated eBay seller MrPotatoHeadd and, like many of Mr. PH's coins, is in beautiful numismatic (coin collector) condition. As a fully uncirculated coin dated 1905, this piece sells for several $100 US dollars. But, if it were worn, the value would go way down to about $10. So you see, condition makes all the difference in a 1905 5 centavos.

Here are typical catalog values for the *common date* 5 centavos:

worn: $1 US dollar catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $85

The *better dates* appear in the list below. If your coin is not in this list, then it is a common date (use the list above for value).

In the list below, values are given for coins in well preserved condition.

1905: $30 well preserved
1907: $40
1909: $65
1912: $250
1913: $30

To convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values, use the information from our Terminology page.

CoinQuest thanks mrpotatoheadd for use of their coin photo. It is a beauty!
